Immigrants in Azerbaijan

Immigrants in Azerbaijan

Immigrants in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan is a country located in the Caucasus region, and like many countries around the world, it has a population of immigrants. The exact number of immigrants living in Azerbaijan is not known, but it is estimated that there are around 250,000 to 275,000 foreign citizens living in the country, mostly from neighboring countries such as Armenia (Azeri descendants), Georgia and Russia.

Many immigrants in Azerbaijan come to work in the oil and gas industry, as well as in construction and retail. Some also come to study in Azerbaijani universities, while others come to join their families who are already living in the country.

The Azerbaijani government has implemented some policies to regulate immigration, including a requirement for foreign citizens to obtain a visa before entering the country. In addition, the government has implemented measures to prevent illegal immigration and human trafficking.

Overall, while Azerbaijan may not be a top destination for immigrants compared to other countries, it remains a place where people from different backgrounds come to live and work, contributing to the cultural and economic diversity of the country.

Baku is the capital and largest city of Azerbaijan, as well as the largest city on the Caspian Sea and of the Caucasus region. Baku is located 28 metres (92 ft) below sea level, which makes it the lowest lying national capital in the world. Baku is also the largest city in the world located below sea level. It is located on the southern shore of the Absheron Peninsula, which projects into the Caspian Sea. The city consists of two principal parts: the downtown area and the old Inner City (21.5 ha). At the beginning of 2009, Baku's urban population was estimated at just over two million people. Officially, about 25 percent of all inhabitants of the country live in Baku's metropolitan area.  

Baku is divided into eleven administrative districts (raions) and 48 townships. Among these are the townships on islands in the Baku Bay and the town of Oil Rocks built on stilts in the Caspian Sea, 60 km (37 mi) away from Baku. The Inner City of Baku along with the Shirvanshah's Palace and Maiden Tower were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. According to the Lonely Planet's ranking, Baku is also among the world's top ten destinations for urban nightlife.  

The city is the scientific, cultural and industrial center of Azerbaijan. Many sizeable Azerbaijani institutions have their headquarters there, including SOCAR, one of the world's top 100 companies and others. The Baku International Sea Trade Port, sheltered by the islands of the Baku Archipelago to the east and the Absheron Peninsula to the north, is capable of handling two million tons of general and dry bulk cargoes per year. Baku hosted the 57th Eurovision Song Contest in 2012 and will host the 2015 European Games.
